Wood Duck at Lake Artemesia.

I met Graeme early at Lake Artemesia, and we made several trips around the lake, then spent an hour or so on the Indian Creek trail.

There were Yellow Rumps everywhere, as well as Kinglets and Blue Jays.  We found a pair of Wood Ducks and a Cuckoo that’s been hanging around the lake for three days.

Beautiful weather, good company and some nice birds. Couldn’t ask for more.
